REAL 1946 Advert.

 

No it's not.  Look right at the bottom lines of this 'advert'.

 

However,  there was a real story here.  Anyone know where this originally published?

     After the end of WWII, thousands of surplus airframes such as the C-47 transport (DC-3) and AT-6 trainers were dumped on the civilian market and caused the major aircraft manufactures to lose millions of dollars in sales of new aircraft. To avoid this from happening again, the U.S. Government no longer sells surplus aircraft to the civilian market. As an example, after Viet Nam the Uh-1 Huey Helicopter could not be certified for civilian commercial flying although many were transferred to local, state, and federal government agencies such as fire and police departments. The FAA said the UH-1 did not meet the airworthiness standards for civilian certification although it was basically the same aircraft being produced  as the Bell 204 by Bell Helicopter.
